Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is excited to present the work of four Artists-in-Residence, Tom Hollenback, Ginnie Hsu, Ronni Komarow and Sigrid Trumpy, with a studio visit. The studio visit will be Thursday, May 17, from 4-6pm at Edgewood Farm in the Barn and Print shop at 3 Edgewood Way in Truro. The studio visit is a free event, open to the public.
Tom Hollenback has come to us from Wisconsin where he is a professor at the University of Wisconsin.
For more than ten years Tom has been examining the intersections of painting, sculpture and printmaking in various configurations and proportions through mixed media works. The color palette, visual textures and “spirit of place” around him prompt a response in his work and direct the outcome of it. Living in landlocked Wisconsin, opportunities to draw inspiration from the ocean are rare. Tom will be staying at Edgewood for one week and will use that time to engage with the non-urban environment and spend much needed time in the studio.
Ginnie Hsu has come to us from Mississippi where she works as an artist, illustrator, designer and educator, teaching at the Mississippi State University. Her everyday life, nature, perspective of the world and the things around her inspire her artwork. She works in gouache, acrylic, watercolor and digital painting and enjoys mixing new and traditional media. Ginnie has been staying with us for three weeks and has used this time to grow as an artist and explore the Outer Cape.
Ronni Komarow has come to us from Boston, where she is a college professor and works as a book artist, mixed-media artist and printmaker. Ronni is using her time here at Edgewood Farm to gather her vision and produce work for her upcoming exhibition at Galatea Fine Art, in Boston this October. Her art practices are rooted in personal narrative, using ordinary experience as a lens to describe and understand more profound issues. The work itself involves mixed-media assemblage pieces and artist’s books. For Ronni having the uninterrupted studio time has been very valuable and even after a week here she wishes she could have come for more than just two. Ronni prepared herself to have as few distractions as possible while here and has even forgone her car to make sure she would get as much time as possible in the studio.
Sigrid Trumpy has come back to Castle Hill from Maryland; she had worked with Castle Hill last summer as a studio manager in printmaking. It was after spending the summer here that she decided to apply to the artist-in-residence program so she could have the time and the space to investigate and experiment with many of the techniques she saw being taught. Having previously participated in three residency opportunities at Vermont Studio Center, she knew how valuable having uninterrupted studio time could be and what it would mean for her artwork. Sigrid is finishing her month long residence and has created a considerable amount of work during that time.
Our latest Artists-in-Residence have much to show, so please join us for a studio visit on Thursday, May 17th from 4-6pm at Edgewood Farm.
